Black Party Expo: T-shirt Design Contest

Here is my entry for the Black Party Expo T-shirt contest, he made his way into the finals, but didn't quite make it into the final bout.  I was really happy with the detail and flow of the design.  Thanks to those who encouraged me to enter.

Muscle Pencil Art: Dragons, Tigers and Bears

Simple concept of taking a muscular male figure and adding Japanese inspired creatures.  This was the first and wanted to go for the dragon since we are in 2012.  

I thought I was doing the same as above, but somehow He-Man Masters of the Universe seemed to be the final influence.

Lots of mass and relaxed Panda.

Podcasts: Mediocre Show + CortandFatboy

hand drawn by zach in SLC and then digitized by ME!  

This is a merch item to help support the Mediocre Show.  This is just one of those things that I do for my friend Eric to support his live show and podcast.  Its a great media for me because I tend to turn on these audio gems and get  stuff done.  

They recommend Cort and Fatboy and I have to agree.  I was pleasantly surprised to find that they really put a glow on my comic book interests thanks to a lot of real comic book folks living in Portland.  

But hey, this is the YouTube generation so here are some videos from each to audioVideo their personalities:

Fan Art Friday: todieforclothing

What more can I say about ToDieFor?  Their a brand that I look at all the time.  They feel like my big art brothers and I sneak into their bedroom to steal ideas.  Then they made it feel like less of a crime when they changed their slogan to "Who Inspires You?"  So thanks to Jason Welsher and Josh "Deph" Welsher for being true leaders in inspiration.  

(Side Note: Don't forget to purchase their ideas, I just got a t-shirt and their sticker pack...high marks on service + quality.)
